Julius Baer’s ambitious training programme for apprentices offers you the opportunity to obtain a Federal VET Diploma as a bank clerk, IT professional focusing on either system technology or application development, as well as information and communication technology (ICT) specialist.
As an apprentice, you will
- receive comprehensive training
- build a network across the company
- develop your overall skills to prepare for a career in banking at Julius Baer
Training as a bank clerk
During the three-year training course, you will attend classes two days a week at the KV Business School in Zurich and spend 30 days at the Centre for Young Professionals in Banking (CYP). You will also visit six different departments of our Bank, which will enable you to further develop your newly acquired theoretical knowledge and put it into practice in real-life situations. These training units and courses will enable you to gain the knowledge and practical skills needed to advance in banking.
- Julius Baer offers eight apprenticeship placements per year.
- The bank clerk training is a three-year programme.
IT & ICT apprenticeships
The IT apprenticeship with a focus on either system technology or application development, as well as the apprenticeship qualifying you as an ICT specialist will provide you with sound knowledge of your chosen field of IT. You will complete your training with a Federal VET Diploma. These three apprenticeships will give you the knowledge and practical skills needed for a career in IT at Julius Baer.
